Good afternoon. I'll be assisting you with your question.
Usually it takes less than a week for judgment to be entered by the judge. It can happen as soon as the same day as the verdict is returned.
Once the judgment is entered, the clock for you to file a notice of appeal starts ticking.
I am reading rule 1.530 Fl civ proc. When is the deadline to file a motion for new trial, or rehearing. This is a non-jury trial.
You have 10 days from when the judgment is entered.
So, if the judge waits 20 days from the end of trial to enter the judgment, you have 10 days from then, for a total of 30 days. It all depends on when the judgment gets filed.
For reference, here is the rule.
Do you have any questions?
I think there is a mistake
I am identified as :jacustumer"
That is not my screen name
I'm not sure why it is that way. I can check with customer service.
Is there a reason it matters for you?
